The Planroom facilities are not for full-time estimating and business transactions.
The Planroom may not be used by more than three estimators from a member firm at one time.
Arrangements should be made with the Coordinator for the use of a conference room for lengthy telephone calls.
Due to the volume of telephone calls we receive, Planroom users must limit phone use to business calls only. Incoming calls may be taken in the Planroom only.
Plans and specifications should be handled carefully to prevent mutilation. All repair needs must be brought to the attention of the Coordinator.
Estimators found to have deliberately mutilated plans are financially responsible for replacement or restoration. The estimator and firm will be suspended from Planroom services for 60 days.
Marks placed on the drawings or specifications must be erased prior to their return.

Members must be considerate of others who may wish to view the same plans.
Plans and specifications may not be split without the Coordinator’s approval.

Plans and specifications cannot be reserved for use in the Planroom during office hours or removed from the Planroom during office hours.
Plans and specifications removed from the Planroom without authorization will result in the member company notification. Planroom privileges will be revoked until review by the Board of Governors.
